Fashion Winners: Nina Dobrev, Kim K & Jessie J “Angelegging” Fashionistas at amFAR 2012

Not familiar with the term “angelegging” head to google or wikipedia. I just found out this morning that the powers that be had coined a term for it, hehehe. Hint: it has something to do with Angelina Jolie on the red carpet at a certain award show earlier this year. 😉

1. Actress Nina Dobrev in Elie Saab, this woman can do no wrong.

2. TV Starlet Kim Kardashian in Elie Saab, it’s Kim K, come on.

Happening In Cannes: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan in Abu-Sandeep at the 2012 AmFar Charity Dinner

Happening In Cannes: Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan in Abu-Sandeep at the 2012 AmFar Charity Dinner

As expected Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan showed up draped in a unique gold and cream coloured embroidered saree designed by the Abu-Sandeep team of India. This marked a departure from the on-trend western wear fans of the actress have become accustomed to seeing her wear in recent years at Cannes. The new mother of one looked ravishing and carried off the look well enough for a woman who recently gave birth. Hair and makeup were in a word, perfection. This is Rai-Bachchan’s second time attending the AmFar gala, a charity that raises funds for AIDS research, she also showed her support earlier in the millenium when she served as a Cannes juror.

Fashionwidget’s Verdict: Models versus Actresses versus Singers versus Designers, every single one of them showed up with their fashionista game face on. We Especially loved the colourful statements made by Doutzen Kroes and Janet Jackson in a two-tone Haider Ackmermann dress. The fashion was simply stellar on the amFAR red carpet this year as expected.  We loved the Jean Fares, the Chanel(s) and the Givenchy Couture(s), we also cherished looks from L.A.M.B (Gwen Stefani was a showstopper in her black halter ensemble) and Atelier Versace. It is with sincere hope that we wonder if it was as much fun for all these divas to strut in their latest designer threads for a worthy cause as it was for us to watch and offer our opinions. We also hope some serious money was raised to benefit AIDS research.
